NFL Preps for Kickoff in Baltimore, Ravens Prep to Play in Denver

BALTIMORE — The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens are starting their 2013 season on the road because of a scheduling conflict. But there will be no shortage of football-themed events in Baltimore leading up to the game.

Early Monday morning, a concert stage will be tugged into the city’s Inner Harbor, across from the Maryland Science Center. Keith Urban will perform from the stage Thursday night before the Ravens launch their season in Denver against the Broncos.

Also on Monday, the Ravens logo will be painted on UTZ Field at Patterson Park. The field will host the NFL’s “Play 60 Youth Football Festival” on Wednesday and Thursday. Events will include drills and coaching on football skills. Participants will also learn about proper hydration and concussion awareness.
